Dear Tour498190, I see your experience lead to your first review on trip advisor. I apologize that your stay was not anywhere near as wonderful as our other guests have praised us for. We want to ensure that we deliver an excellent experience overall. If you found that your rate was not what you had been quoted please provide us with your booking confirmation. We also can price match once we verify that rate is still available. (This Cannot apply to reservations that are prepaid or booked through a 3rd party website.) Prepayment when directly booking with us is handled through PayPal and requires at least 24 hours to send out a payment link and process any payment that goes through. Please be sure to request a link from us to ensure prepayment is made. We also want all of our guests to be comfortable in their clean room. So if you happen to find this is not the case please notify our staff so we can better help you. Our property also serves several gluten options that include over a dozen different toppings ranging from nuts to fruit, fresh fruit, sausage, seasoned potatoes (gluten-free seasoning), eggs, bacon, and yogurt (Also certified Gluten free). I do hope that we will have another opportunity to provide you with a superior experience. Sincere Regards, Shawn Jones General Manager
